I had a full face lift done three weeks ago. Unfortunately, shortly after the surgery I developed a hematoma on the right side of my face, and had to go back into surgery to have this attended to. Although my recovery is going smoothly, I have a lump on my face where the hematoma was. Itís not too noticeable but it does look like I have a jawbreaker in my mouth. My PS says it will take about two months to heal and for the swelling to subside. Has anybody had this problem? If so, how long did it take for the swelling to go down? Thanks for any information you can give me.
